Little Piece of Paradise

Gracious hosts and so welcoming and easy to get to know. Our site was perfect! Shady and power. We really enjoyed the fenced in area for our pooch to roam off leash. They were so nice to let us extend our stay a night so hubby could go fishing. Cal helped us solve a few issues with all his knowledge of RV's.. We sure hope to come back to stay and visit again.
Very beautiful and peaceful setting, along with great conversations.
Might have to hook up with them in Az someday.

La Pine Loveliness

Can’t wait to be able to stay here again! Welcoming, gracious, easy access, quiet, sweet dog greeting committee.. loved sharing stories of travel..


September 2021

Wonderful hosts, easy access on paved roads

Hosts communicated well with us giving great directions to their place and met us upon arrival. Felt safe in a double gated yard with easy access and plenty of room to turn around. Just a few miles to town for groceries and laundry all on paved roadways. We were offered an electric hookup at no charge so we could keep our RV cool for our Pomeranian when we were away from the rig. Hope to meet them again in our travels. Thank You "Our La Pine place" for allowing us to stay!


September 2021

Great stay near Crater Lake!

I was lucky enough to stay the night at the La Pine Place. I had a private spot with electric. It was great. Many thanks to the hosts!


September 2021

Quiet with plenty of space

We stayed here in our 38-foot 5th wheel and had plenty of space. The hosts were great. The large space where you park in the pack had plenty of our kids to stretch their legs and having electricity provided was a bonus. Great spot to explore Crater Lake, and we also really enjoyed the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. The nearby town had affordable groceries and fuel.


September 2021

Well located in Central Oregon

Very nice place to visit. The newly rocked "parking pad" was spot on. Will definitely request to stay at Dale's Resort again. Close enough to the city of La Pine and close to many outdoor activities. Thanks you two!!


September 2021

Secure Location

Very secure location with wonderful hosts. Stargazing on a clear night is amazing. I used the location as a base for local fly fishing. It was great. Thanks folks.


August 2021


Friendly, welcoming hosts. Great communication. Lovely quiet evening - thanks!


August 2021

Peaceful quiet location

Hosts were helpful getting in and parking.

Salt of the Earth

Cal and Judie are salt of the earth people and we really enjoyed our stay at their place. They were fun to get to know. Lots of interesting stories. Our dog explored every square inch of their property. You won't be disappointed with your stay here!


August 2021

Quiet and peaceful stay with wonderful hosts

The hosts were gracious, generous and helped us park our trailer.
My daughter enjoyed visiting with their wonderful 3 dogs. We enjoyed our chats
and learned a lot. Cal is super talented with woodworking, he makes awesome
bird feeders and more. Judie gave us ideas for fun things to do.
Our Visible wireless signal is good here. We got to visit Sunriver village,
Old Mill District, Paulina Lake, East Lake, Smith Rock and Crater Lake.
We enjoyed our stay.. Thank you so much for sharing your peaceful haven
with us.


August 2021

Gracious hosts and beautiful location

Cal n Judie were wonderful hosts! They met as at the gate and got us set up. Interesting folks who enjoying supporting the RV community. Wonderful people and relaxing location.


August 2021

Excellent Location and Wonderful Folks!

We cannot say enough great things about our time here! The access was easy and their property is picturesque. We had 30 amp service and access to the well nearby. Cal has a little shop, and was kind enough to allow us to borrow a few tools. Judie was very quick to respond to our messages. Both were great to talk to, and shared a lot of information about the area. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and will stop by just to say hello if we're ever in the area!


July 2021

Peace in the Pines

What a wonderful stay we had, our hosts were so gracious, and so sweet, it was a pleasure to meet them. Our night was so peaceful, and so quiet. Awesome to wake to the beauty, it was the best night sleep in 3 weeks.


July 2021

Quiet and secluded, just how we like it

Judie and Cal made us feel welcome and then left us alone. They were very pleasant and helpful. We would happily stay there again.


July 2021

Great stay!

Had a wonderful time!


July 2021

A wonderfully quite and tranquil place amongst the trees.

Prompt response, wide open area, 30 amp power and so peaceful.
A wide turn is required to enter the driveway approach and the drive is a bit narrow but I had no issues pulling in with my 36ft fifthwheel.
Other than the warm greeting, I saw nothing of the hosts, they were both warm and kind and informed me upon meeting of both the request to keep the gates closed as well as thier desire to maintain my privacy.
I will be back.


July 2021

Quiet might with starry skys

Cal n Judie are wonderful and gracious hosts. They were there to greet us and show us where we could set up. The 30 amp electric and water for our fresh tank were much appreciated. We would highly recommend this boondockers welcome location


July 2021


Cal and Judy are fantastic hosts. We stayed with them twice in Salome AZ and now we’ve had the opportunity to stay here in La Pine OR. This location has 3 well spaced spots with electric hook ups well off the street making it very quiet and peaceful. We would definitely stay here again and will hopefully be seeing them next winter in AZ


July 2021

Lovely La Pine place

Nice folks and friendly pups. Our dogs loved the enclosed area to play in. Thank you for letting us stay, hope to visit again and chat more when the weather is cooler.


June 2021

Gracious hosts, lots of room

Cal n Judie have a wonderful piece of property with plenty of room for us to navigate our 34’ class A and tow vehicle. Kind folks who greeted us and helped get parked and settled. The dogs are so friendly and my kids were able to get their pet fix. Thanks so much for hosting us. We will return the next time we are in the area.


June 2021

Boondockers Professionals

Cal and Judie were excellent hosts! We are just getting started so we had lots of questions and they had all the answers.It was obvious this is their passion! They were incredibly helpful, kind and made us feel like long-time friends. We particularly enjoyed Cals workshop filled with a vast array of woodwork art among many other things. He’s a very humble man and artist and we were thrilled to hear his stories about many of the items we admired. His birdhouses are so fun and unique! We highly recommend planning a stay with them for a quiet rest in the trees for your next Boondocking experience!


June 2021

Wonderful people!

Cal and Judie are such warm and gracious hosts! Judie was a wealth of information of interesting things to do locally and we look forward to seeing them again.


June 2021

Spacious , Peaceful, Friendly host

We stayed only one night here. There is a electric hook up, free of charge. Lovely hosts!! Thank you so much.


June 2021

Great place

What’s better than 30 amp service in the pines ! Big area for letting the dog run free and nice people. Would stay again. Hot summer days and very cool nights. Lake about 30 min away higher altitude is cooler and great for kayaking. Thanks for having us !!


June 2021

Terrific hospitality !

Thanks so much for your hospitality and exuberant welcome! Although it was a quick stay, we were thrilled with your place! 👍
Great place to stay in the high desert! We loved the birdhouses and the dogs!


June 2021

awesome place Best Boondockers yet

Love the piney woods and its so quiet. A great place for our dog to run without a leash too. Dog friendly people! Loving the cools nights in June and the elect hook up for the warm days. These are awesome rv people and we appreciate all they do for us on the road too! Thank you so much for your hospitality. We would definitely come back again and hope our puppy will be better trained and not bark for your dogs ball! ha


June 2021


We loved our peaceful stay at Cal and Judie's place. They were very kind, offered us 30amp, and suggested some places to visit in the area. We enjoyed Paulina Falls and the Obsidian Flow. On our last day Cal showed us his woodshop and that was a treat. Thank you Cal and Judie for generously offering your place to the BW group.


June 2021

Pine forest haven

J & C were very welcoming hosts. The property is peppered with C's hand-carved bird feeders. They really layed out the place well with trailers in mind (cheers!). You can see the neighbor's horses about 100 yards away. Forest views and starry sky at night. It's so quiet my ears rang haha. No T-mobile service but the AT&T hotspot worked fine. An hour away from Crater Lake & less to Bend! Hope to make it back soon!



June 2021


Wonderful people and beautiful property.


May 2021

Excellent Stay

Perfect for a overnighter.


May 2021

Lovely and quiet

We stayed 2 nights over memorial weekend and it was perfect for our needs. 30 minutes from Bend.
Thank you!


May 2021

Beautiful Area

They have a large lot with trees everywhere. Electric hookup. Very nice couple with three friendly dogs. A lot of space to walk around with our dog. Beautiful place not to far from the highway.


May 2021

Super hosts and nice RV site.

Our stay at Our La Pine Place was great. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. The are ready to help in any situation. The sites were large and 30amp electricity at each one. We will stay the next time we are in the area. Our hats are off to these hosts.


May 2021

Really nice people and a wonderful place

The hosts are wonderful people. They are very attentive to the needs of their guests and they make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive.
We will definitely consider staying with them again.


May 2021

Sweet couple and quiet spot

The hosts here are friendly and welcoming. They helped me back into my spot, we chatted for a bit while I met their dogs, and got to take a look at the woodworking shop. Straightforward, kind, and a little artsy.


May 2021

Great spot

We had a lovely time here. Our hosts were very gracious and there is excellent hiking in the area


May 2021

Absolutely delightful !

Cal and Judie could not have been more kind or hospitable.

They would not accept any payment offered for power we used, let me do some truck maintenance on site that I’ve been putting off.

We greatly enjoyed an afternoon visiting with them, learning their story, the area around us. Judie gave us a great recommendation for a local museum for the kids.

Cal is quite accomplished and they both have an obvious care for the RV community.

These are what type of hosts i aspire to be when we get off the road.


May 2021

Slice of Heaven!

Cal n Judie have the most beautiful property, and are some of the most genuine and kind folks we've met on the road. Communication with them was a breeze and Judie gave us the best directions for getting to them. The property is large and flat, with ample room for turnaround. The entire space is fenced which our lab loved, The neighboring property had horses and it was just so peaceful and quiet nestled under the pine trees. We slept like babies our entire stay. We all loved visiting with the hosts border collies too! Location is close to Bend and we also visited Crater Lake during our stay. Verizon cell service was good. We appreciated the hosts allowing us to fill our fresh water tank on arrival as well as use their 30 Amp service. They would not accept reimbursement for these which is just above and beyond in our estimation. We are so thankful to you for your warm welcome and generosity. Happy travels to you and your pack, and we hope our paths cross again soon!


May 2021

Gorgeous property, spot in the woods

The hosts were lovely to chat too and we so enjoyed meeting their dogs. The spot was level and with electric/water, what a treat! We were surrounded by pine trees which really felt like we were in the middle of the woods. We visited Newberry Volcanic lake about 30 mins away and walked around Lake Paulina. Thank you so much!!


April 2021

Peaceful stay

This was the second time I have stayed with Cal n Judie. I had forgotten how quiet and peaceful their home is. I got a much later start the next morning than I had planned because I was enjoying the ambiance so much. They are such nice people. I know I will be back!


April 2021

Great place in the country

For those of you traveling with pups this place is pretty awesome. Out of the country, quiet, completely fenced, what more could you ask for? Would definitely recommend


April 2021

Great stay with a quiet night

We had a very nice stay with Cal and Judie. Very nice property that made for a very quiet stay and good night's rest! Thanks!


March 2021

2nd visit in 3 weet

Once again had nice restful stay, great hosts.


February 2021

The nicest couple

This was a great stay, super hosts, great place to go out and explore the desert by walking or with ATVs. This is a quiet and serene location. Thank you again for the great stay!


February 2021

Great place

Wonderful hosts, very friendly, loved talking to them. Great quiet location with water and electric hook up. If you’re a pet owner this is the place for you, one acre fenced area for your fur baby to roam, just pick up after it. If your not a pet owner but like dogs you’ll love their three well behaved dogs. Would definitely stay again! Looking forward to our trip to the NW later this year and staying with them in La Pine OR.


February 2021

Truly Calm

Our stay with Cal n Judie was calm and relaxing. Very kind and gracious hosts. A special stay especially for dog people, since it is a wide safe enclosed space for dogs to roam and have some freedom.


February 2021

Great Hosts!

Very kind hosts. They were helpful and friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The lot is large and the property is well kept. Their location is in the middle of a lot of great riding. And they have sweet doggo’s. We hope to see them again next year.


February 2021

Desert oasis

Cal and Judie’s was an amazing stay. Extremely friendly hosts with some of the sweetest dogs! Surrounded by mountains and trails, this was a beautiful place to spend a few nights!

Verizon - full bars LTE
T-mobile - 2-3 bars LTE


February 2021

A Great Overnight Stop

Our first Boondockers experience was with the best! She greeted us on the street so we pulled into the right spot. Flat and clean gravel space to park, with good water. Nice to have electric for coffee in the morning. Although we have no dogs, the area is fenced for dogs, and we got to meet the hosts' rescue border collies and throw sticks. We visited with a young couple also parked and enjoyed hearing of their travels. Perfect spot! Hope to return.


February 2021

Fantastic 1 night stay

It was a pleasure to meet Cal and Judie. Friendly folk happy to share details about he area. Parking place was quiet and peaceful. Wonderful for star gazing. We had good Verizon reception.

Thank you, we hope to return one day.


January 2021

Incredible People!!!

Cal and Judie are so welcoming and accommodating. I have stayed with them prior and think the world of them. They are so generous and helpful to all of their guests. It's an honor to have met them. Their 3 dogs are delightful and so sweet. My dogs love being with them. The property is easy to find, good Verizon here and it's quiet and dark at night. Thank you Cal and Judie for being such gracious hosts!


January 2021

Desert Stay

What friendly hosts ! Thank you for letting me stay, even with my very own huge fenced in dog yard. Very quiet location, not a peep at night. Even had electric. Miles and miles of dog walking opportunities.
And they have such wonderful friendly dogs. I think i'll see them again (if they allow :)


January 2021

Beautiful Sunset and Great Hosts

We had a peaceful stay and enjoyed the beautiful sunset. Our host’s were very helpful and friendly. Great people and a great place to relax.

As usual, great to see these fantastic hosts!!
Enjoyed time talking with them, fun with their friendly dogs, a pleasant walk, tremendous sunsets, quail, rabbits and quiet! 🤗🏜🌞🌈


December 2020

Large territorial view with lovely mountains in the distance. Night sky amazing.

Met by C&J, spoke mostly with J who was a delight and gave a good orientation to what was in the area. Dogs were very sweet, a nice visit with them each day.
Parking area flat.
Hotspot with TMOBILE worked fairly well, 2-3 lines.
TV per antenna about 7-12 stations.

Judie and Cal are very nice and their place was good also.
Thank you


October 2020

Great hosts!

These hosts were lovely and accommodated despite our short notice, delayed arrival, and hectic remote work day in their back yard the next morning! Great folks, and great spot to spend the night, especially for our dog in their huge fully fenced area. We had to drag our pup away 😂


October 2020

Just what we were looking for!

Was looking for a quiet place to stay and that's exactly what we got! Cal and Judie were very nice and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Even allowed us to use a nearby electrical hook-up. They have a LARGE fenced area that the dogs got to run in til they were worn out! Would definitely recommend!


October 2020

Great All Around!

Thank you to our hosts for being so kind to our big family. Not only did we have a great place to plug in and fill up our tanks, they have space to soak up the surroundings. Thank you again for your generosity in sharing your land and selves.


September 2020

Awesome experience

I enjoyed my time to collect my thoughts and get some alone time. It was incredibly peaceful right in the middle of a pine forest. CalnJudie were welcoming and friendly. It was nice to be away from the city life for the short time I had. would stay again for sure.


September 2020

Lovely stay in La Pine

Lovely hosts. We greatly appreciated having a safe spot to park over Labor Day weekend. Very quiet location. Electric hookups. Our dogs enjoyed running in the fenced yard. Thank you both for offering your location to us!


September 2020

Our Stay

Cal and Judie were wonderful hosts. We were warmly welcomed. It is a beautiful site and enjoyed being able to park with fantastic pine trees. Thank you Cal and Judie, we will see you in the future.


September 2020

Very hospitable

Judie and Cal were welcoming and gave us freedom to come and go. They were helpful to us newbies in RV life and gave us tips. Our pup loved it because she had a huge area to run free and their dogs accepted her and she felt one with the pack. We’d love to return one day. Many thanks!


September 2020

Lovely hosts and friendly dogs!

Cal n Judie were very accommodating and gracious. We went to Bend and visited the town for my husband’s birthday and they hosted my two kids as well. Very kind people. We had very nice conversations about family and got suggestions to see places in the area and even got a wonderful recommendation for Mexican food. The property was quiet and peaceful. Would definitely come back!


August 2020

Friendly and quiet

Calnjudie are the perfect hosts, welcoming and kind, happy to share their experiences. While they were preparing to leave on a trip the next morning, they took the time to show us their shop, home, and RV.
Thank you for your tips on visiting Crater Lake. We made it cycling around the rim! We saw an RV like yours and wondered if we passed each other. Our home is always open for a visit.


August 2020

Beautiful retreat

What an excellent experience! Cal and Judy were awesome hosts, made the stay effortless, and shared great tips for the local area. Hope to see them again soon.


August 2020

Puppy Heaven

Cal and Judi were lovely and generous people! The area where we were settled was large and fenced in. My dogs had so much fun getting to be off leash!
While there I met another couple who gave me other boondocking locations to check out. RV people truly are a. Class act...helping others...sharing tips.this was my first boondocking experience and I couldnt be more pleased!
And, the night sky, was just icing on the cake.
Thank you Cal and Judi!


August 2020

Wonderful Hosts

Our hosts were the best, sharing stories and touring the woodworking shop were highlights. Letting our fur babies meet and play off leash was a treat. Don’t miss an opportunity to meet these people. A true joy and we hope to visit again.


August 2020

Quiet & Peaceful

Stayed 3 nights. They are in a quiet & somewhat secluded place. But, easy access to all venues. They are very nice people. They have a lot of room for RVs. If we are ever in this area again or in Arizona at their winter home we will ask to stay with them.


August 2020

Super duper hosts with friendly pups!

As with all the Boondockers Welcome folks we have met, this couple and accommodations were great Friendly, knowledgeable of the area with suggestions about good Mexican food and beautiful drives to take. Thanks for sharing your La Pine Place!


July 2020

Spacious and quiet

Easy access, check with the hosts about using the gates. Cal offered electric but I'm happy using my solar. The offer to fill up my drinking water jugs I took gladly! I didn't get much time with the dogs or Cal and Judie, but they're kind and generous folks for sure! (the dogs are cuties) I had good cell reception, the spot was roomy and lovely. Off to more adventures!


July 2020

Wonderful stay!

I loved staying at Cal n Judie’s property. It was so quiet that after being on the road, I just sat and listened to the wind in the pine trees. There are a lot of outdoor activities in the area...hiking, boating. They were perfect hosts.


July 2020

Very gracious host

Beautiful quite location, host were very helpful directing us in. If you travel with a big rig swing wide to make the turn into the drive. 30 amp was nice. But the weather was nice, even a bit cold till morning. No need for AC.


July 2020

La Pine Place is always Super

This is always a wonderful stay and always prepared for guests.


July 2020

Another fun Stay!

Cal n Judie are the most gracious host's. We spent two nights here. It is so relaxing. Lots of room for our 33 ft trailer. 30amp service. And there was another boondocks here at the same time. We traded stories and got along just fine. We traded tours of our trailers. How fun!!


July 2020

Great location and hosts!

We had the opportunity to stay at "Our La Pine Place: this last weekend. Cal n Judie were gracious hosts, letting us fill up our tank with their fresh well water, and giving us a 30a electrical hookup (much needed for the AC - it was a warm weekend!). Property was fenced and private. Easy access to town or sights, beautiful star-filled sky and soooooo quiet at night. Got to meet some fellow travelers our last night, who were staying in one of the other spots. Great folks, full-timers, plenty of stories on their travels.

We highly recommend this location and hosts - and hope to visit them again some day soon!


July 2020

Wonderful Stay

We can’t say enough good things about our stay at Cal & Judi’s! They are so welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The property was very easy to find, and there is plenty of space for every shape and size rig! Also, our dogs loved the fenced in 3 acres they got to freely roam. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!


June 2020

Beautiful property, experienced RVers & friendly pups!

We requested a 5 day stay to explore La Pine and Bend. Mosquitos were initially intense when we first arrived, but got better during our stay there. We were mostly out and about, so it wasn't too much of an issue for us. Our kids absolutely loved playing with their dogs, Missy, Tally and Bubba. We enjoyed our conversations with Cal n Judie. They were incredibly kind and offered up great advice! There's always something to learn from fellow RVers. We highly recommend this host and location! We hope to cross paths again in the future. Thank you for the wonderful experience, your generosity and kindness is much appreciated!


June 2020

Fabulous stay!

Lovely stay, awesome hosts!


June 2020


Fantastic property. Relaxing and quiet. Owners are phenomenal hosts. Awesome dogs

We look forward to visiting again!

PS-- don't forget bug spray! Large property with mosquitos.


June 2020

Wonderful stay on short notice!

We had a wonderful stay on this property for an overnight. Hosts were very generous and helpful. We loved the view! Thank you so much!!


June 2020

Cal n Judie

Wonderful inviting couple. Great set up to accommodate travelers. Judy met us at the gate, and Cal was there to direct us. Had another couple come in after us, no issue plenty of room. Thank you for making your place available.


June 2020

Wonderful hosts, Peaceful location

We had a great stay at Our La Pine Place. Our hosts were happy to great us, help back into our spot and provide us with 30 amp hookup. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to enjoy the beautiful forested property as we were tired from a long drive and the mosquitos were out in force that week. We will definitely be visiting again if we're in the area!


May 2020

A great 2night stay

My fiancé and I and our dog enjoyed 2 peaceful nights at Cal n Judie’s place. They were very kind and welcoming. The rv area was great, large and separately fenced from their living space home and yard. One other rv was there the first night but the area is so large three was plenty of room. We were able to use power and fill up our tank when needed. Our dog loved the property and playing with the hosts’s dogs. We did too!! The hosts are very experienced RVers and shared good info. It was very peaceful. We loved waking up to the quiet and pine trees from our windows. We would most definitely stay her again and look forward to doing so


March 2020

Great hosts

Another nice stay. Cal wasn’t around but Judie was a wonderful hostess. I hope to stay there again.


March 2020

Beautiful place and people!

Had such a lovely stay at Cal n Judie’s Salome Home! Full hook ups, large gated area for the dogs to roam, plus plenty of room to talk nice long walks outside the property. Cal even helped me back my trailer into my spot cause I’m still very green. 💙


March 2020

Great hosts

Cal n Judie met us when we arrived and led us to the site. Great site for dogs with large fenced in yard.


March 2020

Perfect Hosts

This spot was level, quiet, good signal and beautiful view. What more could one ask for? Great hosts of course. Very kind and very accommodating. They let me stay an extra 2 days so I could go to usps on my way out of town. I enjoyed my stay here and definitely recommend them as hosts. Only bummer was that I couldn’t give them hugs goodbye due to Covid 19. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll see them again.


March 2020

Great hosts!

A return visit for us, as we travel North. Their water is the best in this southwest part of Arizona! We much appreciate these wonderful hosts.


March 2020


Cal & Judie's "winter home" is a wonderful quiet place wo road noise etc.
At night only a few sounds from nearby domestic & I suspect wild animals.
It is a mini campground w full hookups & a pair of friendly hosts that
truly go far out of their way to be hospital to their guests.
They are terrific BW Hosts that have even invited me to their summer home in the North.
The distant NW Mountains are amazing, especially at sunset.
Also, the nearby Salome Restaurant is a great location for breakfast &
I suspect other meals also. Suggestion, if you are hungry & enjoy ham,
get the breakfast Ham w bone-in w eggs, potatoes & toast. Wow! An Incredible feast.
Thank you Cal & Judie, you are both th best!


March 2020

Great hosts!

When I arrived Jodie and Cal were out there to guide me into the site. They had recently bought a site a couple of blocks away. There were two other RV's there. After I got parked and hooked up to power and water (wow! great tasting water!!) Jodie brought her three dog's over. Sadie and I went for a hike with Jodie through the fields to the west ending with a beautiful sunset.

I highly recommend this site if you have Verizon. I have AT&T and there was no connection at all except for 3G which allows for calling but no data, therefore no internet! I would have stayed an extra day if it wasn't for that.

Please note. They are selling the RV site so I don't know if they will be boondocking hosts afterward. Perhaps she will let us know.


March 2020

Very homey and peaceful

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Off the beaten path, quiet, and very generous hosts. We would go out of our way to stay here again! Looking forward to stopping in at their Oregon home!


March 2020

Peaceful stay

Wonderful place for us to rest and take time off. Our hosts were so gracious and kind. Thanks for tips on places to visit. We hope to see y’all around.


March 2020

Gracious hosts

Cal & Judy are one of the nicest hosts you'll ever find. The full hook up, huge rv area. It's a place in the desert that we will always be sure to stop off at.


February 2020

Great, great host's

Couldn't ask for a better stay. Cal and Judies are just the most wonderful host's. Our dogs had such fun running around that 1 acre! Thank you sooo much!!


February 2020

Great stay - dogs were great.

Great host. Quiet nights stay.

Cal n Judie are the Best!

We had a great time with these folks. They are super friendly and helpful and I'm glad we had the chance to get to know them a little bit. Our girls loved being able to play with their dogs. Our youngest daughter even went with Judie for a morning walk with the dogs each morning we were there. They filled us up with fresh oranges and grapefruit as well. Full hookups and a huge fenced in lot was easy to maneuver...couldn't ask for anything more. Definitely recommend this spot if you are in the area. We will go out of our way to stay here again!


February 2020

Desert sunset

Our hosts directions and communication were great. (Be sure to follow directions) Perfect large level serviced sites with a nice sunset view. Hosts share their lovable dogs and extensive travel knowledge with us. We hope to host them sometime thanks so much!


February 2020

Great introduction to Boondockers Welcome

We had a wonderful stay at Cal n Judie's place. Full hookups were great! Lots of room to move the rig in and out. Cal and Judie met us as we arrived and again when we left. Very nice hosts and very friendly, too. Would definitely recommend their place to anyone and won't hesitate to re-visit when we're in the area again. This was our first ever stay at a Boondockers Welcome host and if they are all as nice as Cal n Judie, we'll be members for a long time.
Thank you very much Cal n Judie!!!


February 2020

Wide Open Desert Spaces

We had a great time getting away from it all for a few days at Cal n Judie's Salome Home. Both hosts are super friendly and VERY accommodating! We had a great time catching up each morning (on the warm days) and appreciated the fresh-off-the-tree oranges and pink grapefruits, too!


February 2020

Great stopover!

Thank you Cal and Judie for your hospitality. Sorry we left a day early but it ended up being the safe thing to do!

Please hug your pups for us and thank them for being so sweet to our Sunny!

Hope to see you again some day in Oregon!


February 2020

Hospitality plus

It was a real pleasure to spend a couple of days with Cal & Judie.
Nice quite location with a great view of the night sky.
Small gas station in town has the best pizza anywhere.


January 2020

Great hosts

As others have mentioned we left with an armful of oranges. They also led the way in our plans to go to Quartzsite for the first time. Wonderful people we will be seeing again.


January 2020

Wonderful people and stay

I had truck problems and was a day late for my 5 day stay. Judie and Cal were so understanding they still let me stay 5 days anyway. My dog had a great time here playing with the other dogs. Really sweet dogs. My dog saw here first horse and quail. I couldn’t of asked for nicer hosts. They were always ready to help. They had an area that my dog could finally have the room to run. Best stay I’ve ever had.


January 2020

Great peeps!

These 2 r friends of mine now! Love visiting with them and wonderful place to stay!!


January 2020

You can't get better

Cal and Judie have a great spot with easy access and are great folks. Friendly helpful and knowledgable and generous.
I could only stay one night but gotta come back for more...


January 2020

Bike Trails

We sure enjoyed our stay. Got out our e-bikes, and there were many trails, to ride out on. Listening to gamble quail in the evenings, beautiful sunsets, and most kindly folks! We'll see you at the Quartzite RV rally!


December 2019

Wonderful hosts

Exceptionally friendly & helpful hosts! We stayed one night on our way to Texas, very peaceful & quiet, great nights sleep. Will definitely stay again when we’re in the area.


December 2019


Great people, great location, great amenities = Excellent!! I made good friends in one day and plan to be back in January!


December 2019

Sunny Days

Every day was beautiful in this quaint little town. Our hosts were hospitable and had great stories to tell and good advice to give. My five-year-old really love their dogs and their dogs are really nice around my kids. My older boys got a kick out of the orange trees as we had never seen them before. We wish our hosts all the best and hope they enjoy their time in Arizona half as much as we enjoy ours.


December 2019

A very nice place!

We loved to spent time with our host. It was just for one night because we had a lot et Route to do... but I wish to come back again one time in my life.
Thank you so much again, we love you and we’ll never forget you. 🌸

Great stay!!

Wonderful property and wonderful people! They let us use their electric and our dog just loved running around the grounds! The snow started falling so we had to head out quick! Thanks for a wonderful experience!!


September 2019


We had such a warm welcome from La Pine hosts! From the beginning to the very end, we were more than pleased! Both of them are amazing people & would highly recommend to anyone in any situation!


September 2019

Perfect stopover!

We had read all the wonderful reviews so we decided to stay overnight on our way to Crater Lake National Park! So glad we did. They were incredibly hospitable! We appreciate the conversation and restful stay❤️ Highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful stay!


September 2019

Great quiet place with very friendly hosts.

We really appreciated this place to stay while we were traveling between locations, with plans to visit Crater Lake. We work full time remotely and this worked out really well, as there was abundant AT&T cell service at the site.
The Hosts were gracious and helped us park. They also have very friendly dogs, and the area we were in was fenced off allowing us an area for our dogs to play in.
We were traveling with another couple who were also in their fifth wheel, and there was plenty of space for more rigs here if need be.
If we come through here again, we'd definitely love to have this place to stay.


September 2019

Beautiful People ~ Beautiful Space

Thank you so much to Cal and Judie for the amazing welcome, sharing their beautiful property, and the great hospitality. We work full time during the day, and enjoyed the area in the evening. What a great little town of La Pine! If you come, you just HAVE to check out Cal's art! What a talented man!! We hope to come through again sometime in the future and hope to get to see them again. Easy access through 2 secure gates. Very quiet and very dark at night. A perfect stay. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and we our next host have some big shoes to fill. Thank you again Cal and Judie!

Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We enjoyed our stay so much!
You have a beautiful peaceful location, thank you for having us.


September 2019

La Pine Heaven

My dog Saoirse and I had a fantastic stay in La Pine. Judie and Cal are amazing hosts, and our dogs had a great time playing together. I look forward to coming back to see my new friends again!


September 2019

Beautiful place

Lovely property full of pine trees, about 35 miles south of Bend. Lots of fun things to see and do in the area. Hosts are friendly, full of information and most generous with water and electricity. We hope to stay there again.


September 2019

WOW!! Above and beyond expectations!!

Cal and Judie are the most gracious host's. Wonderful level parking area in the Pondarosa Pines. No issue getting in or out. Someone showed up with about a 37ft motor home. They didn't have any problem getting in or out. 30 amp hookup. Water is available to fill tanks. And it is well water, so it taste's great! All fenced so the dogs could run all over. Lots of room for my 33ft TT and truck. We stayed 4 nights and would have liked to have stayed longer but we had to keep movin' on south. There are squirrels running around. We even found deer tracks next to our trailer in the morning. Cal took about an hour of his time to help me with a hitch issue. He has all the tools you could ever need. Their dogs are very friendly. I just can't say enough good things about Boondocking here. Thank you Cal and Judie, it was a wonderful stay!


September 2019

A warm welcome received

It was so relaxing to stay with Cal n Judie at their beautiful pine forested property. They were most welcoming and their 3 dogs were very friendly. Great forest walks are close by

Cheers Gonetroppo


September 2019

Stay at la pine

Very nice stay! Nice hosts!


September 2019

Very peaceful stay

Enjoyed being with Cal and Judie. They greeted us as we drove in the driveway, showed us where to park, and where very helpful. Location was great. Very close to town and tourist attractions,


August 2019

The best stay ever

Look forward to returning


August 2019

Love to stay at Judie and Cal's place!

This is our third visit and as wonderful as the first time! It's a treat to visit with Judie and Cal and catch up with their lives since last year.

Their space for the trailer is so beautiful and quiet. You feel like you are away from it all and really, just, 15 minutes from town.

There's so much to do in the surrounding area, and if you like delicious Mexican food, be sure to try Cinco de Mayo. Warning - go early to avoid a wait - it was crowded at 4:15 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon.

Fishing at Fall River (about 15 miles) was exceptionally good this time.

Thanks again for the time to visit and to walk with you and your three special dogs!


July 2019

Great stay on the way out from Crater Lake

We needed a stop over as we were leaving Crater Lake and heading to Boise. We had a lovely stay and generous hosts (and some great dogs). Perfect as we were passing through! Thank you!


July 2019

A delightful stay

When you need a quiet space along your way then plan a stay. Everything better than noted. La Pine is just a short trip for Grocery Outlet and the $ Store or other needs. My plans had to change at the last minute and Cal n Judie were very understanding.

Come as strangers and leave as friends certainly applies.


July 2019

Great host and location

La pine place is a great Boondockers site. Spacious, quiet and gracious host. Hope to see them at their site in AZ. M&D


July 2019

One of the Beas

4 nights, C n J are kind, caring and accommodating, 30amp, water, and a few acres fenced for the dogs to run at will. Throughly enjoyed our stay. It's summer in the high desert so expect some dust. Will definitely return.


July 2019

Amazing Generosity and Fantastic Stay

This was a beautiful place to stay and the hosts were so generous and fun to visit with. Our dog was very happy to play with the happy pups who live here. Another plus was the fantastic tasting well water. It was hard to leave. There is so much to do in the area. We really enjoyed the Newberry Monument.

Peaceful and dog friendly

“Our La Pine Place” is a great place to stay. They are such gracious accommodating hosts in a peaceful quiet setting. My dog got along great with their dogs and I was privileged to get some good instruction on my new wood carving endeavor. I would not hesitate to book a return visit sometime.


June 2019

Pleasant Stay!

Had a very pleasant stay at Cal and Judie's place. Would definitely come back if I'm in the area again. Perfect place for a larger rig near to Bend and 30amp power too.


June 2019

Great stay at Our La Pine Place

Judie met us on the roads edge by the driveway and she and Cal helped us get set up with the 30 amp power :-)
They also allowed us to fill up our fresh water tank as our service spot had none available. Both were very helpful and Cal helped me trying to locate a minor electrical issue on the toad.
Great couple with fun kids (the three amigo dogs)


June 2019

Wonderful place!

This was a wonderful stop near Bend! Cal and Judie are such gracious hosts. The large fenced yard was so peaceful and a great place for our children to play! Thanks again Cal and Judie! You have a wonderful home and we appreciate you opening up your property to us!

Great Hosts, great location!

It was great to meet Judie and Cal again, and their individual dogs! And enjoyed their new (to us) rural, quiet, roomy location. Thanks guys! I’m sure we’ll meet again somewhere!


May 2019

Wonderful experience, kind folks and peaceful spot among the pines.

Wonderful couple, friendly dogs and beautiful location. 30amp service available which was appreciated greatly.


May 2019

Great Spot for exploring Bend and surrounding areas

Cal and Judie are simply the best! They were very welcoming and offered a lot of information about Central Oregon. They had plenty of space for our 40ft rig and the electrical hookup offered along with fresh water available was a bonus. Our kids had a great time playing with their dogs as well. All in all a great stay and we would definitely stay again.


May 2019

Peaceful and lovely location

Great hosts plus 3 very well behaved and friendly border collies. Plenty of room among the tall pines. Cal and Judie are welcoming and gracious to visitors and very knowlegable about the surrounding area. Will definitely stay here again!


May 2019

Most peaceful stay

What a beautiful stay! Judie and Cal were so helpful in getting us all situated..start to finish! We fell in love with their dogs...which are like little humans! Awesome much to dohere...Cal is a fantastic artist..he reminded me so much of my father it was hard to leave! Genuinely good people..we will see them again thats forsure! Thank you for showing is your shop and guidance of LaPine...


May 2019

Robbie was Thrilled

Judie and Cal are warm, wonderful hosts. Judie helped me plan my route north and Cal made sure I was settled in comfortably. Robbie was ecstatic and slept so well after being safely off tether in their fenced-in yard. We haven't been able to play catch much lately, and really enjoyed ourselves. Judie's invitation to spend a second night gave us extra time to navigate and get some more exercise. All thumbs and paws up for Judie & Cal and the pups.


April 2019

Great stay,very welcoming couple.. lovely property

Great stay..all good .plus 30 amp power


March 2019


Cal and Judie are a very good people, they went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They shared all their knowledge about living on the road. Mr. cal even help us park our rig and showed me a few tricks to make it easier for me to park.Very sweet people!


March 2019

Very gracious people

Cal and Judie are extremely nice and friendly. Being a novice at rving, they helped me along the way. Their property was perfect for me and enjoyed the quiet solitude. If you want to explore the area Cal and Judie can give you the scope on what's around Salome. I would stay there again and I hope to see them down the road.


March 2019

Very nice people

We certainly did enjoy our stay with Cal and Judie. They are very nice people and were most accommodating during our stay. Their dogs are great and got along with our two like they had been longtime friends. The location is easy to find and get our 33 ft fifth wheel into and set up. Pretty quiet during the day and really quiet at night with a great dark sky after sundown. We would definitely ask to stay with them if we’re back in the area. When we mentioned we have older relatives living in La Pine, Oregon they were quick to insist if we’re ever there during the summer season that the welcome mat will be out.
Thanks Judie and Cal

Larry and Debby

Delightful hosts!

Couldn't ask for nicer hosts! They have lots of room and made sure we had everything we might need. Perfect stopover if you're nearby.

February 2019

nice folks

Plenty of room for our 38 footer. Listen the her directions to get there because the roads could be treacherous if you don't. They will yak your ears off and send you away with oranges.... thanks Cal and Judy, oranges were fantastic....


February 2019

Great place!

We really appreciated this great site and our friendly hosts. Great water, level site, electricity, sewer and delicious oranges too! Thank you!


February 2019

Fantastic experience

Cal n Judie welcomed us warmly and provided a wealth of information and hospitality. Gave us some great travel tips. Actually arrived on the 19th and stayed until the 20th. Thank you very much.


February 2019

Great stop

Wonderful hosts ! Be sure to pay attention to their directions.


February 2019

Desert Rain and a Beautiful Stay...

We pulled in late afternoon and our hosts' were there to greet us! They have two friendly pups which we loved petting. They hooked us up with water, electricity, and sewer too! Judie had a suggestion for a great place to eat and she was right on target. It rained during the night and we slept soundly! They were so kind, and showed us their rig and home, and when we left they sent us off with oranges right off the tree. Can't say enough good things about our experience and we will definitely stop by to see them in Oregon!


January 2019

Magnificent Mountains

Our hosts were more than kind to allow us to stay on their property with an amazing location surrounded by mountains. This was the perfect stop on our way to Joshua Tree National Park coming from Sedona. The spot is perfect with full hook ups and a beautiful view. Thank you so much !!!

Embarrassing moment: Although we were forewarned in the notes, email and our pre-arrival phone call, we went the wrong way and our RV got stuck on what we thought was the correct way. Again, this was our fault. If you get to a spot with a huge dip do not go there. Better to double and triple check. We were fortunate for a kind neighbor with a 4 wheel drive and our host to help us dig out of a potentially huge problem. Fortunately, all worked out. Juat a bit embarrassing!


January 2019

Outstanding hosts and wonderful site

You can not ask for better hosts. Very caring and great conversations. The site is excellent with fantastic views. My hosts went to extra mile for me to arrive at night and guided me in perfectly. Highly recommend and appreciate this great host couple. This a Dog lovers paradise. The site is fully enclosed and their two dogs are sweethearts.


January 2019

Great people

Enjoyable place to stop..thank you for your kindness...hope to see you again next time...


January 2019


Cal is a hoot and his wife is sweet. We love the fresh oranges that we were able to pick. We had full hookups which is rare on bdw! It was a nice rest after Quartzsite!


January 2019

Desert Relaxation

Cal and Judie's place in Salome, AZ is a fantastic stopping grounds with stunning views and great location. The services provided are such a blessing to have along the roads.
Most definately look them up!! Fantastic people!! Can't wait to cross paths and visit once again in the future.

Salome Stay

Great spot with beautiful sunsets. Our two night stay turned into six! Three other RVers shared the space with class A, B and C all represented. Enjoyed conversing with other guests - all full-timers. Cal and Judie were very friendly, having a bonfire one evening, inviting to join for dinner at a local Mexican restaurant another evening, and inviting us to their Escapee gathering at nearby Quartzsite. Thanks for the great hospitality, and we will definitely return if in the area again!

Leah and Karen

January 2019

Great stay with warm and welcoming hosts.

Cal & Judie are very generous with their space & providing full hook-ups. We enjoyed a very quiet place to stay for a couple of nights with views of the mountains. We enjoyed visiting with Cal and other Boondockers around the fire pit one evening. The dogs are very friendly and sweet.

If we're in the area again, we'll certainly be in touch. Thanks for everything!


January 2019

Great hosts

I enjoyed my stay here, Cal and Judie were very hospitable, we had a nice chat about RVing and I got lots of attention from their 2 sweet dogs. They have a very large dirt yard and I had a nice level site with full hookups. They have good well water so I was able to fill up my water bottles, which was great as there’s not much in town. Upon leaving I couldn’t get my electric cord back in it’s slot and Cal came out and got it put away for me. I had good Verizon phone and internet service. Would definitely stay here again if I’m passing through.


December 2018

Wonderful Hosts

We had a wonderful experience at Cal n Judies in Salome. Our pups enjoyed roaming the fenced property and visiting with their pups! Full hookups we're great! We'd definitely stay here again!


December 2018

Boondocking Gem

Cal and Judy were very hospitable hosts. They had full hook ups for us and Cal even helped us solve a problem on our motorhome. They picked a bag of fresh oranges from the neighbours tree for us before we left. Our small dog loved running around their spacious fenced yard and playing with their two dogs. We stayed for two nights and felt at home the whole time. No it’s not too stro we stayed for two nights and felt at home the whole time. Cal and Judy are very warm and kind people.


December 2018

Excellent hosts

We booked a last minute stay with Cal & Judie and they were extremely accommodating. We arrived after dark which we try to never do, but Cal met us out on the main road and guided us in. They are extremely friendly and we enjoyed chatting with them in the morning before we left. We highly recommend a stay with Cal & Judie and will definitely request to stay with them again if we're in the area.


December 2018

Nice Break

Our family was traveling through CA to TX and this was a great stopping point to catch a break in our travel schedule. Cal & Judie were so kind and gracious to us, as well as letting our boys ride their bikes on their property and play with their two dogs. Thank you, again, Cal & Judie - we hope to see you in Oregon sometime!


November 2018

Wide Open Spaces

Such a easy place to land. Hosts so welcoming, friendly and easy going. Wonderful if your a dog lover. Also appreciated having hook ups. Great stop.


October 2018

2nd Stay here always great

This was the 2nd time we've stay here, first time was back in June.
It was much colder this time, got down to about 28 in the middle of the night!
Our hosts are always super nice, and their ranch is big enough for several rigs.
Nearby La Pine is a great little town with lots of good mom and pop restaruaints and several good sized markets. The first gas station on your left as you come into town, driving North, has diesel and propane.

Pine tree beauty

If you like pine trees and very dark nights (milky way photographers anyone?) then this is the spot for you.

The turn into the driveway is sharp but I drive a 45' DP with a motorcycle lift plus tow a car. I just used all of the (dead end) road and had no problem. I unhooked the car before parking in the spot for the night. Also, we drove to the street and hooked up there the next morning - no traffic at all.

The hosts are RVers themselves and are genuinely keen to host and meet new friends. If you are travelling in central Oregon I recommend La Pine Place.


October 2018

The Best of The Best

Cal and Judie have a great place to spend a night or two. They are gracious hosts. We have a forty footer with a toad and had plenty of room to maneuver. The 30 amp electricity was an added bonus. Recommend them highly.


October 2018

Lots to do and see

We look forward to coming back here to see Cal and Judie, as well as to see the high desert attractions we weren't able to this trip.


September 2018

Peaceful Setting

Very peaceful setting beneath the pines. CAL and Judy are very gracious and generous hosts. Thanks for accepting our late stay request. Hopefully we can return to ths beautiful area and visit with them again. Great pups!


September 2018

Cal n Judy

We had a wonderful stay with Cal n Judy and the pups. We will def stay again when in the area!


September 2018

Great hosts!!

Great location and the nicest folks!


September 2018

Great hosts - beautiful location

Cal and Judy are great! and their dogs are super friendly. Their space for boondocking was perfect and came with 30amp hookup. We liked it so much we considered staying a couple extra days but the road was calling and so we only spent one night.
Very helpful giving us suggestions on rerouting our trip to avoid I5 closure because of a fire.
We will definitely see them again and plan on a longer stay. Thanks again Cal and Judy for your generosity!


August 2018

Our stay at Our La Pine

We had a wonderful time with Cal and Judie and the 3 dogs. They gave us a lot of information about their area which we visited. It was fantastic. Lots of places to see. Cal and Judie were very hospitable. We enjoyed chatting with them at the end of the day. Thank you again.
From Aussies in USA.
Love to Missy, Tallie & Dewey.


July 2018

Great place!

A beautiful, peaceful setting in the pines! Very gracious, friendly and helpful hosts.


July 2018

Wonderful People & Great Spot to Explore Bend Area

Cal and Judie were absolutely wonderful hosts. They answered any questions we had about the local area and gave us useful info like where the closest dump station is. They know the area, which was a help because there is quite a lot to see and we only had a few days so had to narrow down our options. They were friendly when we arrived and whenever we sought them ought, but gave us our privacy. We could come and go as we pleased. We ended up staying a few extra nights to have some more time to explore. Their place is easy to find, and easy to maneuver in and out of. It is quiet and was a safe place to unhitch while we explored. I highly recommend Cal and Judie's place!


July 2018

Peaceful & Welcome

Quiet, peaceful environment. Hosts were warm and welcoming. Great dogs and they were very friendly and good with my 2 dogs. It is a wonderful place to stop if you want a restful stay, have pets, 30Amp service is available and a nice place to stop.


July 2018


What a beautiful place. Very quiet. Cal & Judie were excellent hosts. Several acre lot surrounded with tall trees. 30 amp service. Water if you need it. Made you feel like your welcome and wanted. Cal has a lot of hobbies he willingly shows that he works on. A great place to spend a few days & we would stop again if in the area.


June 2018

Friendly folks with plenty of room

This was our first stay with a Boondockers Welcome host and we can only hope the hosts we visit in the future are this welcoming and this much fun.
The property is mostly sunny which is perfect for us because we have solar, and they were kind enough to fill our fresh water tank while we were there, which was a huge bonus since we were going to be boondocking for several days after leaving their property! There were no low hanging branches on the road, the driveway (which is about 500 feet long) and no low hanging branches on the property. The parking area is large enough for about 8 to 10 large RV's so plenty of room to back in or even turn around. The ground where we parked our fifth wheel was perfectly level hard packed dirt. Our hosts were super friendly, and while we were there they had some friends that were also staying on the property. They were all a lot of fun to hang out with. We spent most days visiting local attractions, but we did sit outside with the group on a few occasions, chatting and telling stories of our collective RV adventures.
We had such a great time that we joined Escapees so we can be sure to meet up with them again, hopefully very soon! The property is located within 10 minutes of La Pine, which is a very small, clean town with a lot of new construction. They have pretty much everything you need, a Post Office, an Ace Hardware, quite a few gas stations (with diesel) and several that also sell propane.
There are a couple of grocery stores in town, and plenty of Mom & Pop cafes with great food. Try Cinco de Mayo, really good Mexican food! This is a great stop if you are planning a visit to any of the local attractions like the lava cave or high desert museum and Bend is only about 30 minutes North.
Just make sure you drive super slow through the property because they have 2 very sweet dogs that will sometimes escort you, so you don't get lost.


June 2018

Sorry for the rain

Reception and opening the gates was during heavy rainfall. Sorry for that inconvenient arrival. We got a second patch on higher level to put our rv. Was much better. And had a nice chat afterwards. Experenced our stay very positive and more in comparison with the next day when sun was shining againg. Thanks Cal and Judie and au revoir.


June 2018

Wonderful 2nd visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit with Judie and Cal!!
They are incredibly gracious and helpful! We hope to visit again when we’re over in that area of Oregon.


June 2018

A Friendly Oasis

Our La Pine Home was a great night's refuge after a Long day driving! Hosts were friendly, met me at gate & directed me to a great spot out back, with 30 Amp. Enjoyed visiting about their place, acreage, RVing & shared resources & ideas. Their back area was fairly level, easy to access behind 2nd gate & in the back away from house & drive. Really appreciated the last minute acceptance & warm welcome. Hope to return as invited with more time to explore the area, and learn more about this interesting couple. Happy Trails
Joan Towers


June 2018

Great stay!

This was my first BW stay, and they were awesome hosts. Bonus point for having 30 amp available! They are super nice, helped me back up my giant rig, and the location was nice and quiet. I was going into Bend each day, which is a bit of a drive, but happy to have a free location to stay instead of paying Campground Rates bear there.


June 2018

Loved Our Stay!

We had a lovely spot. It was nestled in the pine trees and very quiet. The hosts are very kind to open their land up to people and are extremely accommodating. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this host to others! Thank you!!!!! :)


May 2018

Beautiful Place & Beautiful People

These guys are our mentors! We hope to be just like them some day. Ideal situation. Summer place in Beautiful La Pine, and winter place in the warm and wonderful Salome. PERFECT!

Thanks again to both of you for the wonderful place to rest our heads for a few nights. We appreciate you both and look forward to the next time we see you!


May 2018

Beautiful property and super nice folks!

Cal and Judie are great. They accepted my request literally in less than 5 minutes and said "C'mon over!" Their property is just a few miles off of Highway 97 and is easy to find. They welcomed us at the gate helped us get set up with power and water right off the bat - very accommodating! Our dog immediately loved the huge fenced area to run around in. And their dogs are also very sweet. Then they left us alone to get settled in and get a good night's sleep. In the morning we awoke to the sounds of many birds chirping and I had a great conversation with them for about an hour before we left. Great folks! We'll probably visit them again soon there or at their property in Arizona. Highly recommend!


May 2018

Really good experiences!

We loved both places that we have been - did not stay the full time in Salome due to illness but we do plan to visit again - awesome. Love this service - thanks, Tiny & Annie


May 2018

Relaxing time in La Pine

I stayed at Cal & Judie's place for a few nights taking some time to relax away from the road (as I had been traveling cross country for three days already). Very quiet here, definitely just what I needed! Thanks so much yall :)

Wonderful time in La Pine

We had a great time meeting Judy and Cal! They were both so kind and friendly. Their recommendations for a great place to eat dinner was right on! If you stay there, be sure to leave room for Mexican food at Cinco de Mayo.

And, Cal was extremely helpful to our questions regarding RVs. We are still new to this and Cal's expertise was invaluable.

Loved meeting their precious dogs, Tally and Missy.

Just Splendid

Thank you Cal & Judie for a wonderful stay! I know the pups loved being able to run around the big enclosed area. It was like a dog park all to themselves!


May 2018

Long lost family!

We can not say enough good things about Cal and Judie! We were greeted warmly and as if they had known us forever. They opened their home to us, visited with us and gave us directions and recommendations on things to do and see in the area. We enjoyed dinner together. Cal helped Herman with a repair. Our original plans were to stay 3 nights but we enjoyed their company so much we stayed an extra night. We were sad to leave and will miss these two new friends! We hope to see them in GA soon!

Great overnight stop

Very social and helpful hosts. It was so quiet at night I slept in later than planned. Would recommend them to anyone in the area.

Perfect place to boondock with the kindest hosts!

Cal and Judie's kindness is off the charts! They helped us out in so many ways, including letting us know about a work camping job nearby, helping Randy fix a broken jack and so much more! We had fun playing bingo, got together for pizza and thoroughly enjoyed there company. Randy and I loved seeing the wild burros they told us about, one of them snorted at me when I got too close! We hope to see Cal and Judie again, maybe in Oregon.

Super Great Host's !

We had a wonderful time at Cal& Judy's place! They are very gracious host's , and very knowledgeable about boondocking, including things to see and do in the area. They kindly gave us full hookup, and their large fenced lot was perfect for our dog Lassie to play with their friendly dogs. We highly recommend their place, and we had a great visit.We add them to our "Friends " list, and welcome them to visit us when they roam north! Ron & Elizabeth.

Very generous folks

Cal and Judie were exceptionally generous in hosting us for a boondocking evening at their home outside Salome, AZ. We learned a great deal form them about Escapees, which they enjoy and participate in. Cal and Judie have two very friendly border collies. We spent time in the evening over a fire, looking at the mountains far away and exchanging stories. We worth a visit, and they also have a property in Oregon we intend to visit if we are in that area for the summer. Their property is set up to accommodate up to 3 boondockers at any one time. We will visit again in the future.

Great & Interesting Hosts in Bend, OR Area

We were hosted by Cal and Judie, for one night at their home in La-Pine.
First experience with BoomCampers Welcome as guests.
We spent the evening with the welcoming couple, which gave us Lot's of good tips and advices, as experienced RV users.
Were invited to stay more nights, but had to continue.
Communication before and during hosting was good.
If you are travelling to Bend and/or Crater Lake area - highly recommending !
Hope to meet again in AZ.

Great hosts!

Cal n Judie welcomed me to their place for the last night of my long trip from Texas to Madras for 2017 Eclipse. Pretty place, sweet dogs, enjoyed visiting with them. They have 30A hookup, so I was able to fully charge my battery before 5 days of boondocking at Solartown.

Awesome Host

This might be a long recommendation. We stayed with Cal and Judie. They met us as we drove in, to open the gates and help us set up. Then we enjoyed the evening visiting with them in their beautiful home. We travel with a cat and a dog. Our cat has always stayed fairly close to camp so she is free to roam. As we started to leave Monday morning our cat was not to be found. We waited, searched and called for about six hours and still no cat. With a heavy heart we left for the coast. Thursday morning we are in Coos Bay and receive a call from Judie. Cal has spotted our cat. We immediately drove back to Cal and Judie's. Again they were outside waiting on us when we arrived at around 4 pm. But no sign of our cat. Again, this was Thursday. Cal and Judie told us to stay as long as we needed to look for our cat. Luckily our cat shows up at 11 that night. These folks where simply AWESOME all the way around. Before the missing cat, after the missing cat and after our cat returned. We can never thank them enough for their kindness and hospitality!!!!


July 2017

Wonderful Hosts, will be back!

Cal and Judie were so helpful and couldn't have been any nicer!!! We stayed 3 nights and will stay again when back in the area. They have very sweet dogs too! Our kids loved exploring and being free to play there also! Camped in a 39 foot 5th wheel.

Great Couple with a great location

We were made very welcome by Cal & Judie, very quiet locayion and only a few mile off the Hwy with good access and plenty of room to turn a big rig on the property. We were on a schedule so only able stay one night. Thanks guys for your hospitality.


June 2017

Highly recommend! Awesome Folks centrally located in beautiful area of OR

These folks are truly awesome! They agreed to accept a package for us, an ordered placed after we left home, and communicated with us in our travels.

We arrived on a day the temps were near 90, helped us set up, and let us not only plug in but turn our a/c on to cool the rig off. Space and turning around is not a problem here. If you are looking for aquiet, peaceful location in the pines, wow, this is the place!

They have two rescues, a border collie and healer/border collie mix that are so well trained and friendly it is a delight to share time and the couch with them.

Don't pass by these young folks in your travels, they have lived such interesting lives, have traveled many miles, and have so much wisdom
and experience to share!

Catch them early if you can (we certainly will again!), because if you don't they will probably be off on their own adventures!

Enjoyed staying the night at Cal and Judie's

Really enjoyed getting to meet Cal and Judie.
Very gracious hosts who live on a gorgeous piece of property with a ton of room for the rig and tow car.
They even had a 30 amp outlet for us to use.
Easy in and out for parking.
This was our first time using Boondockers and we are "sold" on the program.
If they'll have us back, we will definitely stay here again.


April 2017

Very nice visit!

These hosts were very welcoming and helpful, they have a great site with all the important things. They are friendly and gave us lots of good information about the area. Enjoyed the time we spent here!

A oasis in the desert

My husband and I had an amazing time at Cal and Judie's place. Our dog loved the fenced in yard and the company of their two furbabies, Clyde and Missy. Clyde and our Sadie were inseparable during our time there. We were so excited about the full hook ups as that is hard find boondocking. Cal and Judie were so gracious and even let us pick oranges and grapefruit from there trees. We had such a good time that we ended up staying another night and met up with them at our next destination. Definitely recommend this oasis in the desert.

Wonderful People and THE STARS!

We spent 2 nights with Cal and Judie and their dogs, Clyde and Missy. They were welcoming and kind, we felt
At home instantly. We couldn't have had a better place to ride out a rain and wind storm. Their place is beautiful with distant views of the gorgeous mountain ranges, the inky black sky full of brilliant stars, and awesome cloud formations. Our dog is pouting as we drive away. She will certainly miss being able to just go out the door of our RV to play safely and vigorously with her two new friends on their fenced in acre lot. She slept like a log those two nights and will be dreaming of Clyde and Missy tonight I am sure. Cal and Judie could not have been more gracious and had it not been for our need to reach our next destination today, we would love to have taken them up on their offer to share Christmas dinner.We look forward to seeing them again for sure in AZ and in Oregon. What a great first boondocking experience!


December 2016

Amazing and Beautiful

Gated, super level, full hook-ups, Amazing Sunsets and even more amazing folks. Cal and Judie are FANTASTIC people and we very much enjoyed visiting with them. Their place is very cool and has inspired us to look into Salome more for ourself. :)

Thanks so much for your hospitality, hope to see you in Quartzsite and hopefully in Oregon too.

Happy Travels - Guy and Christa

Great People!

Though we only stayed one night, Cal and Judie were very gracious hosts. There site is nice and quiet and in the country. There two dogs were very friendly. My husband enjoyed seeing Cal's workshop and having a beer. Would highly recommend staying here!


September 2016

Great hosts on a great property!

We had a wonderful experience staying with Cal and Judie. They were extremely helpful and accommodating. They have a large property with a private dirt site tucked away in the back for our rig. Their property is within 45 minutes of Bend and a little over an hour from the beautiful Crater Lake. We loved the areas so much that we asked to extend our stay there by a few more days and they were more than happy to have us. It was a pleasure getting to know the two of them and their friendly pups. We will absolutely be visiting the area again and will be sure to reach out to them.


July 2016

Do we really have to go?

Our first boondockers welcome experience was so remarkably amazing we didn't want to leave. We made new friends in Cal and Judie and our dog Diesel made two new friends with Missy and Clyde. We camped in a 40' motorhome with 16' trailer and there was plenty of room in an incredibly scenic setting with access to every kind of recreation my heart could possibly desire. Hiking, road biking, mountain biking, 4-wheeling, fishing. Cal and Judie are wonderful people and wonderful hosts. Thank you for opening your beautiful property and giving us tips on the area. We enjoyed are stay immensely. Pardon the effusiveness but I can't say enough.

Perfect hosts

Wonderful hosts, that ended up being from the same part of the country we are from. Perfect private spot in the back of their property. Thank you so much for offering your place.


June 2016

Perfect Scenario

We were thrilled to make the acquaintance of Cal and Judie and to spend time at their place. We appreciated the fact that the location of the motor home was behind a large, totally fenced in area that allowed our dog to run around without being on a leash and enjoyed getting to know Cal and Judie. We would highly recommend their place for privacy, safety, and the ability to get know some great people.


June 2016

Peaceful Location

Cal, Judie and their dogs were wonderful hosts! This was our first time using Boondocking and we were thrilled to visit with Cal, Judie and their dogs. They both provided us with great tips for RV'ING since this was our first big RV trip.


December 2015

Remarkable people

We couldn't be happier. Our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and it was magical. These two people should be given an award for hospitality and compassion. Should you be near this wonderful them. If you're treated the way we were, you'll be very pleased.

This is a quiet country site. lovely spot to relax and rest up. Our host and hostess were outstanding!!! Cal helped us back in with awesome instructions. for non backers, he is patient and kind and informative with guiding us back thru the gate. WOW! it was a one time with no over corrections. Judy was sweet and kind and gave us all kinds of great information on what to see and where to go. Distances too, She even looked up our next stop. I would return in a heart beat.

Perfect base for this area!

It sounds corny but it really was an excellently convenient location from which to start exploring the area - (La Pine State Park, Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Paulina Lake and Peak, Obsidian Flow, Lava Cave, Lava Lands...) Cal and Judie have a lot of RV experience, lots of space to accommodate your RV on their easy-access circular driveway or side drive, and were very communicative, helpful and friendly. Thanks Guys, it's great that you're there! Dave R from California.
